obama has a leg to stand on when it comes to entitlements. in the last four years he created a giant new entitlement that will put the onerous taxes on the middle class. i think he has to keep president obama on defense all night. i've talked to a lot of people and they say the entire debate is about romney. romney needs to play to win. while president obama needs to play not to lose. as long as he can keep him on defense, which he can. the facts are on romney's side. i talked to a senior advisor and just saw the candidate, he is calm and in great spirits ready to go. >> bob: that is what they always say before debates. if you abandon your own vice president medicare proposals? >> dana: they answered that. >> bob: how so? >> andrea: i don't think he will let himself get trapped in the details, bob. he will take it to the president. the facts are on his side. all he has to do is bring up the promises that president obama made. all the promises that he hasn't kept. boston you want to be president, you have to come up with details, too. >> what about skating through on promising to bring do

've written about this year is how the obama campaign is adopting these experimental methods to measure the effect of their mail and online ads and tv ads. it's more complicated and more expensive but it's a way of trying to break out of the line solely on the polls and focus groups that try to ask voters to imagine in this sort of artificial setting what would change their mind, and instead introduce them to information in the real world to believe they are basically being examined and see if it actually does change their mind. so that is a one next way of using these experimental techniques to see what really does move the voters and get out of the sort of the artificial setting of the focus groups alone. >> host: on that note with the obama campaign, since they have had four years ago time to study and now they have for years later, is there any innovative technique they're using now, any more that you can't -- >> guest: the programs are really the thing and they have been used in small narrow ways by some institutions, the afl-cio, emily's list over the years in certain states in th

it and the obama campaign should expect this as well because that's what happens this time of year. in 2007 we were going six months at this stage, or six months into the campaign four years ago at this stage. we were focused on iowa. we believed we had to win iowa to have a shot at the nomination. if we lost, we would have some problems. there was a much more narrow path to the nomination. so everyone was really focused on the four early states, which included new hampshire, south carolina, new hampshire as well. things were really starting to happen in september. starting to see things come together after many months. tuneups for thel collaps race that's 12 weeks away. a car you have on labor day is the car you'll drive through the primary. so you are getting people into positions. it was late september when this poll dropped. it was the same one we had been seeing a couple months, but it showed hillary clinton ahead by 47% to 23% at. it was a cnn poll and she was winning by at least 20 points or maybe 25 points. apple dropped into headquarters like a grenade. there was something that happened in

president obama promised when he was candidate obama four years ago? no. but is it better than where we've been for the last 40 months? yes. i also think that we're going to e how this momentum thing plays out because we have so very many events coming one right after the othe we have a vice presidential debate in a few days followed by another presidential debate. we have a lot to see yet. >> it is widely agreed, speaking of debates, that mitt romney won the first debate, but did americans, particularly undecided voters get the whole story. cnn did some fact checking on comments made at the debate this week. i want you to listen to this on the topic of the deficit, first. >> mitt romney claims that even with his tax cuts, he will not add to the deficit. >> my number one principle there is no tax that that will add to the deficit. i will not put in place a deficit thdea tax that adds to the deficit. my plan is not to put in place any tax cut that will add to the deficit. >> we want to look at the facts here, again. mitt romney has not laid out specifics for how he would pay for his tax

this campaign. president obama is a very gifted speaker. the man has been on the national stage or many years. he has done these kinds of debates before. this is mitt's first time on this kind of a stage. >> reporter: president obama has done this 8 times. governor romney continues to hit president obama on foreign policy. a new op-ed in the wal "wall stt journal" will be about domestic policy. but governor romney is planning a new speech. the following two presidential debates will include that. megyn: meantime president barack obama is in henderson, nevada. some say the city of henderson is a microcosm of the economy we have seen over the past few years. yet the latest polls show the race in nevada is neck and neck and that is causing -- ed henry live in vegas. hey, ed. >> the president -- they are calling it debate camp in henderson. 20 miles from where i am right now it's an opulent resort known as lake las vegas that is symbol i of the boom and bust. that whole lake las vegas resort where the president is doing his debate prep. it's modeled after an italian village. it went bankrupt the

they decided that they would not attack barack obama based on his pastor. but this is a different year and it is telling that the right thinks what will unravel the presidency of barack obama and make him a one-term president, the thing that will make people vote for mitt romney is not something from the obama presidency but rather something secret from barack obama's past. something secret people didn't know about him before. if they only knew this about him, his reelection would be impossible. that's the one side of this bomb shell tape. from the other side, this year's bomb shell tapes of paul ryan and mitt romney have not been about some secret past for these men. unless you count paul ryan pledging his allegiance back in 2 2005. the tape that's made a big impact against the republican side this year has been tape of things that paul ryan and mitt romney have been saying within the past year. specifically when they are talking to conservative audiences. so two weeks ago, david corn and ryan grim at "the huffington post" posted video of romney talking to wealthy donors in florida. d
in this country for a time period that's more easily measured in centuries than in individual years. again, not exactly a bomb shell. now they are dousing themselves in gasoline and hitting the fire alarm all over again over a video of president obama speaking as a candidate in 2007. in this video, which the right is very excited about tonight but which has been available online since 2007, mr. obama, then a candidate, acknowledges the presence in the room of his former pastor from chicago, reverend jeremiah wright. steve smith was part of the strategic team in 2008 when they decided that they would not attack barack obama based on his pastor. but this is a different year and it is telling that the right thinks what will unravel the presidency of barack obama and make him a one-term president, the thing that will make people vote for mitt romney is not something from the obama presidency but rather something secret from barack obama's past. something secret people didn't know about him before. if they only knew this about him, his reelection would be impossible. that's the one side of this
problems in four year stretches. i think barack obama can proudly say look at what we accomplished these are the issues. we are on the cusp of making real progress in the next term. >> you talked about the big problem that we had a few years ago in the banking industry. i want to take you back to your previous life as attorney general of the new york. you know the story with torn general snyderman with j.p. morgan. what do you think about that case? >> eric deserves credit for bringing the case. he made the overarching argument that there was structural fraud going on at bear stearns then acquired we morgan chase. the case is a rehashing of allegations from other cases over time. my food is ok, so be it, but he has pulled it together into a more coherentar particular let format. made the case the federal government should have made many years back, the federal government was queasy, unwilling to do it. eric deserves credit for the fortitude of trying to say to the public we will hold them accountable individually and institutionally for the wrong that did enormous harm to our socie

repaired all the damage that he found in just four years. when president barack obama took office, the economy was in free fall, it had just shrunk. we were losing 750,000 jobs a month. the are we doing better today? the answer is yes. >> and we should say, we are actually back now to where we were when obama got in office. but do you think bill clinton is right there? did obama do all that could have been done? >> well, i think he did all that could have been done that the congress would let him do. with hind sight, the stimulus package should have been bigger, but at the time it was put together, there were two things that were constraining it. one was we didn't know how bad the economy was at that moment. it was still getting worse. but nobody knew how much worse it was getting. and the other was sort of sticker shock. it was a big number and the congress wasn't prepared to vote more than that. and didn't want to come back to it. >> and of course, subsequently republicans in congress refused to vote for the american jobs act. alice and sam stein thank you for joining me tonight
buried the last four years. >> reporter: the republicans jumped on that. buried by obama? >> vice president biden said just today said that the middle class over the last four years has been, quote, buried. we agree. that means we need to stop digging by electing mitt romney the next president of the united states. >> reporter: that's the kind of zinger sure to be heard at debate number one. i'm steve handelsman, nbc news, denver, colorado. >>> of course tonight nbc is going to have complete coverage of this first presidential debate. it will be anchored by brian williams along with the best political team in the business. it all starts at 9:00 p.m. eastern, 6:00 p.m. pacific. >>> elsewhere, a judge in pennsylvania has blocked the state's stricter voter i.d. law from taking effect this november. after weeks of protests, the ruling means voters in pennsylvania will not have to show a state approved i.d. to cast ballots on election day. the judge said he was concerned that the law could prevent some people from voting. stricter voter i.d. laws in four states remain, but tougher laws
not. if you want barack obama's specifics look what happened last four years. those are his specifics. with romney is in a bit of a bind though because the things he wants to do, when you get down to real brass tacks of them are not going to be popular, right? more tax cuts for super-rich. messing around with medicare. give us more specifics on that. see how that plays in florida. tracy: at the same time, enough is enough with handing out welfare checks, handing out food stamps. we're on our way to socialism. is that what american people want to hear. >> what ellis said we have four years of evidence what barack obama has done and what he would do next four years. the reason obama is not being specific because if he told us more of the same, more deficit spending, ever huger debts, more growing dependency, more welfare checks the american people would go screaming into the streets. tracy: talk about mitt romney now. mitt romney, everyone wants mitt romney to come out swinging. is that the way to do this tonight? >> if you're romney you have to be tough and aggressive. you have to hit
